REFLECTING IN RIVERSIDE
People gathered in Riverside Park on Thursday to unveil a memorial bench by Moms Stop the Harm and Addiction Matters. The bench is intended to be a place to remember lost loved ones and inspire dialogue and awareness about the drug crisis, both in Kamloops and across the country, as the opioid crisis continues.
Lac du Bois fire under control
KFR URGES CAUTION TO THOSE IN THE BACK COUNTRY THIS WEEKEND
Light winds and quick work by firefighters Wednesday night prevented a fire in Lac du Bois from encroaching on homes about a kilometre and a half away as the crow flies in Batchelor Heights. The small fire is now being held and there is no safety risk. Kamloops Fire Rescue acting platoon captain Will Harlock said a call came in just before 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday night.
Crews responded to a fire in the same area about a week ago, he said, with the cause potentially a rekindling from that blaze. KFR is unsure of the cause, however, at this time. Fully engulfed, the fire — above Batchelor Heights and adjacent to Lac du Bois Road in the park — reached a size 150-square-feet. No structures are at risk. “Basically, we were able to contain it before it got any further,” Harlock said. “If it was really windy, that size of fire would have got-
ten away from us pretty good. Because there’s good grasses and sagebrushes in the area, too.” Kamloops residents will recall a highly-visible fire that threatened homes in the area last year. Harlock explained winds were extremely strong on that day, which led the lightning-caused fire to spread quickly. On Wednesday, winds were light. Thirteen Kamloops Fire Rescue members attended the scene on Wednesday, along with two crews from B.C. Wildfire Service. By about 10 p.m., only a

couple firefighters and a bush truck remained on scene. They remained at the scene on Thursday morning to maintain hot spots. As the long weekend approaches, Harlock is reminding people to be careful amidst dry conditions. Dirt bikers should have a spark arrester, smokers should not light up in dry areas and, if you see a fire, report it. “Even though we had a pretty wet July, it’s bone dry out there right now,” Harlock said. “Just be careful.”
The community is grieving following the death of a Kamloops entrepreneur. Kamloops Heating and Air Conditioning founder Gary BridalFisher died on Aug. 20 in a “tragic swimming accident,” according to the company’s Facebook page. He was 32. “Gary was the founder of our family business, which he put his heart and GARY soul into,” BRIDALsaid the FISHER message, posted online on Wednesday. The news has elicited an outpouring of condolences online. Through his business dealings, BridalFisher donated to community organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Centre for Seniors Information, Children’s Circle Daycare Society and the BC SPCA. In 2016, he was nominated for a Kamloops Chamber of Commerce Young Entrepreneur Award. BC Coroner’s Service is investigating the sudden and unexpected death. The agency will not comment on the cause of death at this time. Kamloops RCMP was called to the scene of the accident. Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said the death is not criminal in nature.

KEEP GARBAGE OUT OF REACH OF BEARS
2020 CITY CALENDAR CALL FOR PHOTOS
Have you heard about the recent increase in bear activity in the city? Bears are preparing for winter hibernation. To help keep them from being tempted by garbage and other food attractants, the “Bear Smart” Bylaw is in effect until November 30.
Residents of all skill levels and ages are invited to submit their digital photos for a chance to be featured in the 2020 City Calendar. This year, we are looking for YOUR image that you think best embodies Kamloops while representing one of the following terms:
“Be like Billy“ and ensure garbage is securely stored until it can be placed at the curb—no earlier than 4:00 am on collection day. Mismanaged garbage is one of the main reasons bears will enter neighbourhoods. When bears learn that garbage means food, they come back again and again. Help keep garbage out of reach of bears by doing the following: • store garbage and recycling in a garage or sturdy enclosure • keep pet food containers indoors • keep barbecues clean • remove bird feeders between May and November • pick ripe fruit quickly and remove unwanted fruit trees Learn more about keeping neighbourhoods safe from bears at:
DOWNTOWN TRANSPORTATION CHOICES STRATEGY
The City has engaged with stakeholders and the public to identify a number of initiatives as part of the Downtown Transportation Choices (DTC) Strategy. The strategy includes ambitious but realistic programming and education. It will promote actions to assist residents with adapting to a lifestyle of more transportation choices and less reliance on the private automobile for travel to and within the Downtown.
• photos taken and owned by the participant • maximum of 3 photos per participant, submitted in digital format • participants grant reproduction rights and permissions to the City of Kamloops • photos must be a minimum of 2 MB, must not exceed 20 MB, and must be in landscape format (horizontal orientation)
The project team will be at an information booth on Saturday, September 7, to present an overview of the short-, medium-, and long-term initiatives identified for the DTC Strategy. You’re invited to come learn more about this project, ask questions, and provide feedback on the recommended initiatives, which will be brought forward to Council later this year.

WESTSYDE ELEMENTARY TO REOPEN NEXT WEEK SHUTTERED IN 2006, OVERCROWDING LED TO DECISION MICHAEL POTESTIO
From the outside it looks like the same old building, but within Westsyde elementary is a brand new school. “This place was basically torn down to the studs and redone,” said the school’s principal, Don Poelzer, while touring media through the halls of the newly renovated school on Tuesday. Rooms are still being organized and an exterior paint job is being applied, but the school will be ready for the first day of classes on Sept. 3. “We still have a couple small things to get finished like our Wi-Fi and a couple carpentry items that still have to get done, but we’re almost there,” Poelzer said. Closed in 2006, Westsyde elementary has been renovated from top to bottom, sporting new doors, floors and windows. The school boasts plenty of space with many multi-purpose rooms, including a dedicated art room and computer lab. “While, at some schools, we’re adding portables and there just isn’t space for those multi-purpose rooms, Westsyde will have that,” SD73 superintendent Alison Sidow said. Poelzer said he intends to put the multi-purpose areas to good use for as long as possible. He said he wouldn’t be surprised if they had more than 200 students attending
MICHAEL POTESTIO/KTW Westsyde elementary has been renovated from top to bottom.
Westsyde elementary in a couple years. While registration is still ongoing, the new Westsyde elementary has about 165 students enrolled so far for 20192020. “There will be transfers both into and out of the school,” said Poelzer, noting there are about two requests to transfer out and about eight requests to transfer into the school. Transfers will be accommodated pending space, Poelzer said, noting they also have to be mindful of class size and composition rules and maintain some space for people moving into the neighbourhood. The KamloopsThompson school board approved reopening Westsyde elementary in order to alleviate overcrowding at nearby David Thompson elementary, which housed 425 students last year. All students living north of Pine Springs Road — starting from homes that border Sicamore Drive, Sumac Place and Seneca Place — are to attend Westsyde elementary. The district estimates Westsyde ele-
Thompson Rivers Family Optometry
mentary housing about 175 students. While the incoming Grade 7 class has been grandfathered in at David Thompson, Poelzer said there are about eight who will choose to move to the new school class and will share a split class with Grade 6 students. The north side of the building will house primary students, while the south end will be for intermediate grades. The layout of the school is the same, except for a single room that was enlarged to house an art class, Poelzer said. School District 73 spent about $1 million on the renovation and 9,000 hours of work to the structure over the summer. The refurbished gymnasium has a new sound system and score clock, but sports equipment has yet to arrive. “We’ll mark those walls up in no time,” Poelzer said. The school’s sports teams have yet to receive a moniker, but Poelzer said a new nickname and logo will be in place within a couple of weeks. “I already have the jerseys ready to print,” said Poelzer, noting the
school’s colours will be red and grey. Outside is a new playground and fresh blacktop, which replaced an old, cracked surface. The school zone signs are also in place along Westsyde Road. Westsyde elementary has a roster of 10 teachers, three support workers, a secretary, library technician and two custodians. Only three teachers from David Thompson elementary moved over to the new school. Other positions were filled by other employees in the school district based on seniority. One of those new teachers is Tessa Watson, who could be found organizing her Kindergarten classroom on Tuesday. Watson, who spent the last two years as a district literacy resource teacher, said she was excited to come to the new school because all staff members are coming together as an entirely new team. Poelzer himself last worked as the district principal for international education. “We have people here who really want to be here and that’s a nice way to have a school culture start,” Poelzer said. As there is a lot of room in the school, Bumble and Bean Daycare — which had been leasing space in the old school — will be allowed to stay, occupying space in the gymnasium, as well as a room at the front of the school, Poelzer told KTW.

Community Input Session: BC Hydro’s Fiscal 2020– 2021 Rate Application The British Columbia Utilities Commission is reviewing BC Hydro’s Fiscal 2020–2021 Rate Application and we want to hear from you. BC Hydro’s Application includes a proposed net bill increase of 1.76% in fiscal 2020 and 0.72% in fiscal 2021, along with other proposed changes. The BCUC invites you to attend and/or provide your thoughts on the Application at an upcoming Community Input Session.
Losing multi-purpose rooms to overcrowding has the Kamloops-Thompson school board taking stock of long-term needs. School District 73 approved adding six new portables for the coming year and another six rooms in various schools are expected to be repurposed to address the issue, which usually means sacrificing specialty areas, like computer labs, to add classrooms. “Space is a challenge,” said SD73 superintendent Alison Sidow. “Where it becomes problematic is when we don’t have multi-purpose space for learning assistance of for music, so we’re losing our specialty spaces.” Concerned about losing more of these rooms over time, Sidow said the school board has asked staff to draft an official district plan to identify where additional schools will be needed and the baseline standard of specialty rooms that should be included within SD73’s schools. “In a modern school you would expect to have those kinds of spaces for kids to work in small groups to get some additional assistance and support,” Sidow said, noting music should be taught
...We need to begin discussions “ with our communities around
how they envision the future of education, — ALISON SIDOW,
School District 73 superintendent
in a proper music room and learning assistance done in a multi-purpose room. The official district plan will encompass a 30-year outlook, and will also consider how to address aging infrastructure. “Kamloops is a growing city. We need to align ourselves with the city’s official community plan and we need to begin discussions with our communities around how they envision the future of education,” Sidow said. The school board is still in the process of determining how to roll out that public consultation for the plan, but Sidow anticipates more information to come out in the coming months. Enrolment growth continues to be an issue in SD73, and the school district’s longrange facilities report is calling for 13 repurposed rooms and 24 more portables over the next five years to deal with space constraints. The final numbers won’t be known until classes settle into place, but there are early
signs of enrolment growth as Marion Schilling, Juniper Ridge and Dallas elementary schools are expected to be above projections for the 2019-2020 school year. Pacific Way elementary is another school facing enrolment pressure. “We know we’re going to continue to see growth in Aberdeen and we are seeing the impact right now,” Sidow said. The total number of elementary students for 20192020 was projected at 8,982. Projected enrolment at the secondary school level across SD73 is 5,490 — a slight reduction from the previous year, according to assistant superintendent Bill Hamblett. Sidow said they have filled all teaching positions and, SD73 has a “healthy” number of substitute teachers, but are lacking in a few specialty areas such as french immersion. Any unfilled postings would come about if finalized enrolment numbers indicate more teachers are needed.

NEW RULES A ROAD BLOCK FOR RIDE SHARING
ow many taxi drivers do we have in this province? That has to be a question running through the heads of many after the B.C. Passenger Transportation Board last week released its rules for ride-haling companies in the province. The rules confirm the inordinate amount of clout the B.C. taxi industry wields with provincial governments of all political stripes. After years of watching the BC Liberal government twiddle their thumbs while the rest of the world got on board with Uber, Lyft and other ride hailing companies, the 2017 provincial election revealed B.C. New Democrats were equally beholden to the taxi industry. The new rules state that ride hailing companies must adhere to the minimum “flag rate” charged by taxi companies, meaning customers can forget about getting any discounts when they’re trying to get home from a night at the bar. In fact, companies will be allowed to charge “surge pricing” to increase rates during peak times. This comes after it was announced that B.C. Uber drivers would need a Class 4 licence, unlike most of their counterparts around the world. A Class 4 licence carries a cost of $150 as well as a $23 fee to re-class your licence. Throw in the hours spent studying to pass your written exam and road test, and that’s a lot of miles to be logged before a driver can break even. These restrictive conditions have put a roadblock in front of ride hailing companies operating outside the Lower Mainland. And it’s not like long waits for cabs are exclusive to Greater Vancouver. There have been many reports here in the River City, and other areas have seen complaints of passengers being turned away because the fare wasn’t worth the cab driver’s time. But even these slanted conditions aren’t satisfactory to the taxi industry, who voiced objections to a single operating zone and an unlimited amount of operators for ride hailing companies. And in case you were wondering, there are currently about 215 taxi licensees operating more than 3,500 taxis in B.C. Who says political strength doesn’t come in small numbers? — Black Press

Boris makes his move
hock! Horror! Johnson prorogues Parliament! End of democracy in Britain! The Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, says he was not even consulted, and calls it “a constitutional outrage.” Or, to put it a little less dramatically, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has cut the amount of time that parliament will meet before he crashes the United Kingdom out of the European Union in a no-deal Brexit on Oct. 31 by six working days. Johnson will face parliament for the first time as prime minister on Sept. 4, but they will all go off on holiday again on Sept. 10, not on the 13th as scheduled. And then parliament won’t meet again until Oct. 14, not on the originally planned date of Oct. 9. So no need to panic, and a rather small constitutional outrage. Great commotion in the media, of course, but the reports that zombies will roam the streets of London eating the children of Remainers after Britain’s ‘no-deal’ departure from the EU on Halloween are absolutely untrue. (There have, however, been some werewolf sightings in the city.) Johnson is an accidental prime minister. Few people even in his own Conservative Party thought he was fit for the job, but they panicked after the Conservatives came fifth in last May’s European Union elections. So out goes May and in comes Johnson, who may be a liar and a clown but is popular with Conservative voters. And this new prime minister, chosen only by a vote of Conservative
GWYNNE DYER World
WATCH Party members, inherits the task of keeping the Party’s promise to take the UK out of the EU. Alas, the parliamentary arithmetic to do that still does not work. The Conservative government has only a one-vote majority in parliament, but that’s the smaller part of the problem. The bigger part is that Conservative members of parliament are so split on the question of Brexit that there is no exit deal that all of them will vote for. Theresa May did actually negotiate a realistic exit deal with the EU late last year that allowed for a smooth continuation of trade and avoided the danger of re-creating a hard border in Ireland. Unfortunately, that enraged the extremist headbangers on the far right of the Conservative Party so much that they voted May’s deal down three times. The alternative is simply to leave without a deal. That means accepting a huge hit to British trade (half of which is with the EU), a crash in the value of the pound, and a great many lost British jobs. Johnson himself is
no head-banger, but he is a chameleon who will change colour if it serves his purposes, and he has adopted the no-deal policy in order to become prime minister. This still does not end the Conservative Party’s civil war over Brexit because a small number of moderates on the other wing of the party will rebel and vote against a no-deal Brexit rather than see economic ruin. They may be as few as a dozen, but that might be enough to bring the government down. So where are the opposition parties in all this? All over the place. There are four of them, and they can’t agree on the time of day, let alone on a common strategy for stopping no-deal. That’s why Johnson thinks it’s worth taking flak for cutting down the number of days parliament will meet between now and Oct. 31. The fewer days the opposition has to work on the problem, the less likely they are to get all their ducks in a row. It’s as simple as that, and it’s entirely legal. So what are the odds that Britain will really commit this massive act of self-harm? About the same as they were last week, actually. On learning of Johnson’s new move on Wednesday morning, analysts at the Royal Bank of Canada raised the probability of Britain crashing out of the EU without an exit deal to 44 per cent. Last week it was 41 per cent. Small crisis, not many hurt. Gwynne Dyer’s new book is Growing Pains: The Future of Democracy (and Work). Read more Dyer columns online at kamloopsthisweek.com.

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Concern over hand-held gadgets Editor: As a grandmother and a retired employee of the Kamloops-Thompson school district, I have concerns about the younger generations. Waiting for knee replacement surgery and using a walker, I have the time to observe a lot of behaviour in the downtown, where I have lived for 12 years. My greatest concern is the obsession the younger (and, sometimes, older) generation has with hand-held gadgets. The worst scenario I wit-
nessed involved a young mom walking down Fourth Avenue, pushing a small baby in a stroller while her toddler was lagging behind on his own. What was the mother doing? Looking down at her phone with no regard for her children's safety. Sure enough, a truck pulled out from the lane, right in front of her, and I had to yell at her to pay attention. I've seen young dads pushing strollers with one hand while concentrating on their phone in the other hand. Sad to say, these are not uncommon
sights. While riding transit, I have seen moms spend the entire time on their phones, making zero eye contact with their young children. How are these parents’ behaviours going to affect the next generation? Yes, we had Sesame Street as a babysitter, but I coloured with my daughter while she watched her favourite TV show. Are parents still colouring with their children? Laura Douglas Kamloops
Good samaritans strike after fall Editor: Earlier this summer, a friend and I were walking around McArthur Island after supper when I fell on a dip in the sidewalk near field six. I went face-first onto the pavement and was knocked out. Some men came to help me up and out of the dirt before I passed out once again. While someone covered me with a blanket, a lady with medical training held my head, another person held my hand. I don’t remember any of this. I hurt my face, hand, ankle
and knee. I’m still having trouble with a concussion and my ankle. I would like to thank all of those who assisted in helping during my fall. The first responders — police, paramedics and staff at Royal Inland Hospital — all helped in such a caring and professional manner. I am sorry for not getting your names, but you know who you are. Your care and kindness is much appreciated. Special thanks to Lee and Bee for being there for me.
Thank you Lee for looking after my dog. The city apparently doesn’t have money in its budget to fix something like sidewalks at McArthur Island that is being used by young and old. They have money for disc golf park and a rainbow crosswalk (there are already four in Kamloops) but not for something as important as sidewalks around McArthur Island for walking for our health. Where are our priorities? Melrose MacKie Kamloops
REMEMBER THRIFT CITY Editor: My husband, mom and I moved to Kamloops in 1995. In 1996, we were made aware of the need for volunteers at the New Life Mission. So, Mom, Abe (my husband), myself and our two daughters volunteered, plus short periods for two granddaughters. It wasn’t much more than an old shack by the railway tracks, but it served a very special purpose. We all had lots of fun preparing meals, sharing with clients and lots of clean-up. One day, Abe suggested to the director, Bert Kamphuis, that we start a thrift store as additional donations were coming in and there was no room for more shelves. So off we went, the director two others and Abe and I.

We did come up with an upstairs (a former dance studio) and the new thrift city was born. It was so exciting. Several moves were made to accommodate the growing need. Then, the New Life Mission was rebuilt. We worked hard and had exciting and wonderful times. Now, after 24-plus years, it’s over. Well, Thrift City is done. It is missed greatly by so many. We are all still in shock. Our city has lost a great gift. We were there to hang up the first hangers (with many others) and I was there to take down the last (again, with others). I feel lost without it. It’s heartbreaking. Blanche Funk Kamloops

Warner Rentals lends support to RIH project $500,000 DONATION WILL HELP PURCHASE EQUIPMENT FOR NEW PATIENT CARE TOWER MICHAEL POTESTIO
A local equipment rental company has ponied up half a million dollars to support Royal Inland Hospital’s patient care tower expansion project, which is currently under construction behind the three-yearold clinical services building. Warner Rentals announced the donation, which is the local business’ largest gift to the hospital to date, on Wednesday. “My children were born [at RIH], my mom fought cancer there ... it’s the heartbeat of our city and we have to make it better,” said Warner Rentals owner Ralph Warner. “We have a massive opportunity with this new tower

and we have to do our best for the care of future generations.” The $500,000 gift is being put toward the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation’s fundraising efforts to purchase equipment for the new patient care tower. Alisa Coquet,
campaign director for the RIH Foundation said they intend to raise more than $20 million for that equipment. “It’s a huge expansion, so there’s lots of departments the money will go towards,” Coquet said,
noting the need to stock new operating theatres and a maternity ward with things like ultrasound and x-ray machines. The RIH Foundation met its fundraising goal of $4 million for the project in the last fiscal year
and are well on their way to reaching the goal of $5 million in 2019-2020, Coquet told KTW. Warner said there will be more funding coming from his company, as the new patient care tower expansion comes to fruition.
“We work hard and make intentional decisions in order to benefit this community, and that’s what this $500,000 donation to RIH Foundation is all about,” he said in the release. The $417-million expansion will include

42 underground parking spaces, 157 surface parking spots and a rooftop heliport. The project is expected to be completed by spring 2022 and will open in the summer. Construction on the project is moving along with as most of the digging work on site having now been completed, Coquet told KTW. Crews also completed the first major concrete pour on one of the parking levels that will form the basement of the tower. Work is continuing on the foundation and the footings that will support the tower and over the next several months, the structure will begin to rise as concrete is poured to form the different levels of the tower, according to Coquet.

CHBA study delves into taxes, fees on new builds PRESIDENT CALLS FOR FREEZE AMIDST HIGH HOUSING PRICES JESSICA WALLACE
With a federal election approaching and municipal development cost charges up for review, the building industry is taking a hard look at taxes and fees that go into constructing a new home. The Canadian Home Builders’ Association hired MNP to study the money collected from all three levels of government on a new build. It found that in Kamloops, about $50,000 is collected in total on an average home. The assessed value of that average home could not be provided. Canadian Home Builders’ Association Central Interior president Kelly Reid said that as governments continue to discuss
As the supply of houses is required, if “ it pushes the new houses up, the resale market is also affected by it.”
—KELLY REID, Canadian Home Builders’ Association Central Interior president
housing affordability, it is important to understand how much tax is being paid. Increased taxes and fees on new builds, he said, impact the entire market. “It pushes up used homes, as well,” Reid said. “As the supply of houses is required, if it pushes the new houses up, the resale market is also affected by it. “I think it’s just some awareness around it and also when we’re talking to the three different levels of government, we want to make sure that we don’t continue to see increases to taxation and fees on a new home.” New homes are
charged myriad taxes and fees, including government sales tax, provincial sales tax and property transfer fees, with all three levels of government taking a piece of the pie. The CHBA-MNP study revealed the majority ($29,700) of the $50,000 in revenues on that average newly constructed Kamloops singlefamily home went to federal coffers. The province, meanwhile, picked up $12,000 and the city collected $8,700. However, the study determined additional municipal fees
can be incurred to rezone, subdivide and site service, tacking on up to an extra $16,000 in municipal fees, depending on the build and requirements. “All three levels of government are talking about trying to deal with housing affordability and the price of houses, so we don’t want to see them increase fees on houses because that, of course, goes against housing affordability,” Reid said. This year, the city will be reviewing development cost charges, with meetings expected in the fall.

Some driving tips include: • Be patient and leave plenty of time to get around schools and playgrounds; • When backing out of a driveway or leaving a garage, look for children walking or biking to school; • Slow down and scan surroundings; • Remove distractions, including talking on cell phones or texting; • Remember that speed zones near playgrounds are in effect from dawn until dusk, not from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., as is the case of school zones.

Committee recommends West Victoria Street staircase removal JESSICA WALLACE
The development and sustainability committee will recommend council approves removing a staircase connecting West Victoria Street and McIntosh Street behind The Mustard Seed. Coun. Dieter Dudy said the decision, which was reached unanimously by committee members on Monday, came after hearing concerns from area residents about congregation and “aggressive” situations, such as residents being followed back to their homes. Others in the area have reported to police and bylaws issues of transients, graffiti, alcohol, drug use and loitering. “As much as I take seriously the idea of taking infrastructure out and how that impacts the city, as far as the cost goes, I think I take more seriously the welfare of the people that live in the area,” Dudy said. “They’re really quite concerned about
what’s going on.” A petition with more than 100 signatures calling for the removal of the staircase went to the committee earlier this summer. However, staff said removing the staircase would not fix the problem and also suggested it could pave way for future requests elsewhere in town. The committee initially suggested improved lighting could help. Upon review on Monday, however, Dudy and councillors Sadie Hunter and Arjun Singh voted to send a recommendation to remove the staircase to council next month. It is expected to cost the city about $11,000. Dudy said it will cost the city less money to remove the staircase during West Victoria Street construction. Staff have said it could cost the city up to $18,000, if the staircase were to be removed at a later date. In addition, Singh noted the stairwell is redundant. He said committee members considered impacts on active transportation
Police say motor vehicle thefts trend downward Thefts from vehicles in Kamloops hit an eight-week low the third week of August, but remained consistent with numbers from the week prior. From Aug. 19 to Aug. 25, Kamloops residents reported 35 thefts from motor vehicles. There were 36 reported between Aug. 18 and 24. Last week, 10 thefts were reported in South Kamloops, eight from the North Shore, five occurred downtown and one in Valleyview, according to maps provided by Kamloops RCMP. Two thefts from vehicles in Campbell Creek, another in Dallas and one in a rural part of town were not captured on the maps. Five reports had unknown locations for
where the thefts took place. Mounties are releasing a map each week to show where in the city thefts are occurring. “These maps are not just a reminder to motorists to lock their vehicles, but also to all citizens, to remind them that if they see suspicious behaviour in their neighbourhood, to call the police,” Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said, when announcing the mapping project. REPORTED THEFTS FROM VEHICLES: • Aug. 19-25: 35 • Aug. 12-18: 36 • Aug. 5-11: 43 • July 29-Aug. 4: 43 • July 22-28: 39 • July 15-21: 48 • July 8-14: 60 • July 1-7: 58
and decided new sidewalk access as part of the West Victoria Street project would suffice.
As much as I take seriously the idea of taking “infrastructure out . . . I take more seriously the welfare of the people that live in the area.”
The committee recommendation will go to council for approval next month.

A group of Kamloops seniors are putting 10-year high-school reunions to shame, in celebrating their 65th year since donning a cap and gown at Kamloops High School. “It’s been quite a ride,” 83-year-old Marvin Tansley, event organizer, told KTW. The class of 1954-1955 had about 120 students. Today, Tansley said, about half remain. He’s hoping to get that half — and others around the same age — together on Sept. 12 at the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre. A banquet and open-mic will be held, where talks will be held of the old band that travelled overseas to Holland to perform internationally, physical education class and many more stories that have occurred in more than six decades since graduating. Those who graduated around that time can contact Tansley by calling 250-517-9867 or emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets are $65 per person, which includes a banquet.

Two companies fined for illegal donations to federal parties CHRISTIAN PAAS-LANG
Who Says Time Travel Doesn’t Exist ? THANK YOU FOR
S!! OUR PRAISE
of Mu d n u o S The
The New Canadian Curling Club
OTTAWA — Two companies have agreed to pay almost $450,000 in fines after admitting they made illegal political donations to both the federal Liberals and Conservatives between 2004 and 2009. Groupe AXOR Inc. acknowledged a senior executive, who is no longer employed with the company, asked some employees and their families to make donations totalling $66,237.60, while offering to reimburse them for the contributions, the federal elections commissioner reported Thursday. A similar scheme was used at Axor Experts-Conseils Inc., yielding totalling $49,721 in donations. Of that money, $67,418 went to the Liberals and $48,540 to the Conservatives. In both cases, the companies reimbursed donors through personal expense claims, and in the case of Axor Experts-Conseils Inc., also through bonuses and other benefits. Because of those reimbursements, the companies acknowledged to the elections watchdog that the donations effectively came from the corporations, which are not allowed to make election contributions in Canada. Both Montreal-based companies agreed to pay penalties equal to three times the donations and a portion of the investigative costs for the commissioner, who enforces national electoral laws. Groupe AXOR ended up paying $248,712 and Axor Experts-Conseils Inc. paid $199,163, with the money going into federal coffers. The voluntary agreements mean the companies accept responsibility and commit to pay the fines and take other
measures, but do not admit guilt under criminal law. In a statement Thursday, commissioner Yves Cote said this is the first time his office has used its new power to levy monetary fines on top of getting the donations returned. The new powers are the result of changes made to Canada’s electoral laws in 2018 and have applied since April. “To have the ability to impose real consequences as part of these agreements will allow us much greater flexibility and will be extremely useful going forward. Canadians should expect to see us make full use of this new tool from this point on,” Cote said. The companies have undertaken changes to their internal procedures to ensure compliance with election laws, the agreements say. The commissioner also said there was no evidence the two political parties knew the donations were illegal. The Liberals and Conservatives have returned all the money. The two companies named in the agreements this week, along with another member of the Axor family of companies, were also embroiled in an illegal donations controversy in 2010 at the provincial level in Quebec. At the time, Quebec’s equivalent of the elections commissioner found 40 cases of illegal donations, most going to the provincial Liberal party. And in 2016, another Quebec-based engineering firm, SNC-Lavalin, entered into a compliance agreement with the commissioner after almost $118,000 in political donations were reimbursed to employees through methods similar to those in the Axor cases. Most of that money
went to the federal Liberal party. Charges were eventually laid against just one SNCLavalin executive. The commissioner justified a compliance agreement by saying the executives involved in the scheme were no longer at the company, it had adopted new procedures, and had co-operated with the investigation. The question of the 2016 agreement resurfaced during the political crisis in early 2019 sparked by alleged attempts to pressure former attorney general Jody WilsonRaybould to reach a deferred prosecution agreement with SNC-Lavalin on charges of alleged corruption in Libya. Conservative critic Pierre Poilievre criticized Cote for having a “very cozy” relationship with the Liberal party, asking whether there had been any interference from the Prime Minister’s Office in the decision to sign a compliance agreement with SNCLavalin. The commissioner, in a rare move, issued a public statement saying no politicians, staffers or public servants had tried to “influence or interfere” in any decisions in which they were not the subject. “And I want to make it clear that if this ever happened, I would promptly and publicly denounce it,” Cote said. Also on Thursday, Cote announced compliance agreements with five individuals who all admitted to requesting additional ballots after having already voted in the 2015 election. Two of the individuals were fined $750, while three were fined an additional $250 because they had tried to be put on lists of electors in a polling division where they did not live.

Scheer says Liberals deflecting with abortion, same sex marriage CANADIAN PRESS
OTTAWA — Andrew Scheer said Thursday that the Liberals are trying to distract from their record of failure by dredging up divisive social issues and a government he leads would not reopen the debates on abortion or samesex marriage. But the Conservative leader did not rule out giving latitude to individual MPs seeking to express themselves on those issues by bringing forward private members’ bills that may seek to restrict LGBT rights or the right to abort a pregnancy. He did say he’d oppose them. “As prime minister, I will always oppose measures that reopen these types of debates,” he told a press conference in Toronto. Both issues have been bedevilling Scheer for the past week, since the Liberals circulated a 14-year-old
video of him explaining to the House of Commons why he was opposed to same-sex marriage. He said at the time that same-sex couples could not be married because they could not “commit to the natural procreation of children.” Scheer did not outright disavow his remarks from 2005. But he said Thursday that those remarks come from a chapter of Canadian history that is now closed. “My personal views are that LGBT Canadians have the same inherent self-worth and dignity as every other Canadian and I will always uphold the law and always ensure that they have equal access to the institution of marriage as it exists under the law,” he said. Scheer said Canadians have also moved on. “It’s just the Liberals who are pushing this, trying to distract from their record of failure, corruption and
scandal, trying to dredge up issues from long ago in attempt to divide Canadians and distract from their own scandal,” he said. It is his Quebec lieutenant, however, who has sown confusion over the abortion issue, telling Conservative candidates in the province that backbench MPs would not be allowed to propose private member’s bills to restrict abortion access. That appeared to fly in the face of Conservative policy, which was believed to allow MPs to bring forward private members’ bills on whatever subjects they like. Scheer insisted there was no contradiction. He said MPs know they are allowed to hold their own beliefs, but that they must also all work together. “We work as a team, and the certainty that Canadians can have confidence in — a Conservative government will not reopen this issue.”
Feds, province will push to electrify gas industry CANADIAN PRESS
SURREY — The federal and British Columbia governments want to power the production of the natural gas industry in the province using electricity. As part of an agreement announced today, the two governments and BC Hydro are forming a committee to
push projects that increase power transmission. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the agreement is aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the natural gas industry, which produces about 18 per cent of the carbon pollution in the province. B.C. Premier John Horgan joined Trudeau in making the
announcement at a BC Hydro training centre in Surrey, saying the two governments are working to make the economy more environmentally sustainable. Environmental groups have criticized Horgan’s NDP government for its backing of the liquefied natural gas industry in B.C., arguing changes to the province’s tax
structure and subsidies are helping a sector that increases carbon pollution. The federal and provincial governments have boosted LNG Canada’s plans for a $40-billion project in Kitimat, which is expected to create 10,000 construction jobs and up to 950 permanent positions in the processing terminal on the coast of B.C.
Funds added to tackle campus sexual violence CANADIAN PRESS
OTTAWA — The Liberal government is committing up to $1.5 million to help colleges and universities get better at dealing with sexual violence on campus. Maryam Monsef, the minister for women and gender equality, says the
money is to be spent over two years to fill gaps in resources that post-secondary institutions need to tackle the problem. Earlier this year, Monsef asked an advisory committee to develop national standards to hold universities and colleges to account when it comes to address-

ing gender-based violence. Student groups welcomed the effort but said those promises should be backed up by the resources and oversight needed to make them work. The Liberal government committed $5.5 million over five years towards the initiative in the 2018 federal
budget, which also came with a threat. The budget said that beginning this year, the federal government would consider holding back funding from institutions that are not putting “best practices addressing sexual assaults on campus” into place.

Alberta government repeals ban on seclusion rooms CANADIAN PRESS
EDMONTON — Alberta’s United Conservatives have repealed a ban on seclusion rooms in schools that was brought in by the previous NDP government.
The ban on the rooms, which are meant to give disruptive students a place to settle down, was to take effect next week. Education Minister Adriana LaGrange says the UCP government will proceed “in a more measured way.”
She says feedback from school boards and teachers suggested a ban on seclusion rooms would limit a school’s ability to protect the safety of everyone. LaGrange says new rules on how to use the rooms will be in place
by October and interim guidelines should be followed until then. Those guidelines say seclusion and physical restraint are only to be used when children’s behaviour could be harmful to themselves or to others.
They also say seclusion rooms are only to be used in a crisis and not to manage day-today behaviour. Last week, four of Alberta’s largest school boards urged the province to bring back seclusion rooms before the school year started.
Where car insurance is heading. From September 2019, we’re moving to an insurance model that’s more driver-based. This means how long you’ve been driving for and your crash history will play a bigger role in determining premiums. Plus, if someone causes a crash in your car, it’ll go on their driving record, not yours. With this shift, all drivers will be held more accountable for their driving decisions.

Feds queried summer jobs grant groups over abortion JOANNA SMITH
OTTAWA — The Liberal government denied youth summer job grants to about two dozen organizations this year because officials felt they were trying to weaken or limit access to abortion or sexual and reproductive health services. Employment and Social Development Canada said it received 39,933 applications for the Canada Summer Jobs program this year, with only 403 of them being deemed ineligible for the funding under new rules that say the money cannot be used to undermine human rights. The Liberals brought in controversial changes to the 2018 version of the Canada Summer Jobs program, demanding applicants attest that neither the job no the core mandate of the organization opposed human rights, including
those related to abortion, sexual orientation and gender identity. Many faith-based organizations balked, arguing that forced them to choose between their religious values and money that helped them to run summer camps and other programs that had nothing to do with abortion. The Liberal government responded to the outcry by changing the wording in time for this year, requiring applicants to declare instead that the organization does not actively work to infringe upon human rights, including access to abortion. Newly released documents reveal the federal government pressed at least some organizations to be more specific on that front. “Please provide additional information or clarification on the services your organization provides to women seeking access to sexual and reproductive health
services,” said a followup letter sent to an undisclosed number of applicants in early March. “The Government of Canada defines sexual and reproductive health services as including comprehensive sexuality education, family planning, prevention and response to sexual and gender-based violence, safe and legal abortion, and postabortion care,” said the letter. The Canadian Press obtained the letter through the Access to Information Act. “It seems like the government is doing a pretty good job in terms of scrutinizing the applications,” said Joyce Arthur, executive director of the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada, which had played a role in pushing the Liberal government to take this into account when deciding who gets the money. Employment and
Social Development Canada would not disclose which organizations received the letter, citing privacy concerns. The department said 26 of the nearly 40,000 applicants for the 2019 version of the program were deemed ineligible over this issue. The Canadian Press confirmed that some of the letters were sent to crisis pregnancy centres, which are often Christian-based organizations offering support to women with unexpected pregnancies, including by sharing information about abortion, adoption and parenting. Many of these centres have been criticized by abortion rights advocates for spreading inaccurate or misleading information about the risks of abortion as a way to dissuade women from terminating their pregnancies, although the approach they take to individual conversations can vary.
David Guretzki of the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada said a number of crisis pregnancy centres reached out to his organization this spring after being denied summer job grants, despite having provided the federal government with the
additional information they thought they were seeking. “They don’t provide the service and they don’t refer, but they don’t prevent anyone from accessing it,” said Guretzki, the executive vice-president of the organization. “That’s
why it’s a bit disappointing, in the sense that what does it mean to prevent someone? If they come to the organization seeking some kind of help and advice, and they give them advice, it’s still up to the individual to make that choice.”

IN SEARCH OF THE COLOURFUL CABOT TRAIL JANE CASSIE
SPECIAL TO KTW
A little wildlife and some colour would be nice to see,” my husband, Brent, says wistfully. “Along with the occasional ocean view. But then, that’s a given.” We’d planned this trip to Cape Breton on Canada’s East Coast with hopes of getting some visual overload, not only of the many dramatic coastlines, vibrant bays and empty beaches, but also the burst of colour that happens every fall. Unfortunately Mother Nature seems to be a bit tardy this year in delivering the eye-popping goods and everything is still a lush green. The Cabot Trail, a 300-kilometre route that loops around the Cape, is touted to be one of Canada’s finest road trips. While embracing the area’s Scottish heritage, it showcases some of the East Coast’s spectacular vistas and landscapes. During this time of year it’s usually ablaze with colour. Fingers are crossed. The views are more dynamic when travelling the route in a counter-clockwise direction across this magnificent mass of land. Following a 10-minute cable ferry from Englishtown, we veer northward onto the Cabot Trail, which parallels the shoreline. Within short order, shimmering St. Ann’s Bay melds into the endless Atlantic. “Can you see Europe out there?” my travelling partner quips. “That’s the next neighbour to this body of water.” The first must-stop is Ingonish, a seaside hamlet where there’s something for everyone. In warmer weather, swimmers are lured to its expansive
JANE CASSIE PHOTO Cape Breton’s Cabot Trail offers a rich history of settlement on Canada’s East Coast. Dramatic coastlines, vibrant bays and empty beaches are dotted along its 300-kilometre route, looping the Cape. It’s fall beauty is an added bonus to one of Canada’s finest road trips.
beachfront, golfers zero in on the Highland Links course and the pamper-set make a beeline yearround to Keltic Lodge, a hilltop haven that offers everything from chichi accommodation and dining to a pool and spa treatments. “Our activity wish list includes hiking in the area, so we check our trusty map that pinpoints numerous trailheads, providing a brief synopsis of each. Several lead to tranquil lakes, others to cascading waterfalls and many to panoramic viewpoints. It’s too difficult a decision just yet, so we mosey on. Although there’s no commercialization within park boundaries,
whenever the road veers outside its borders, restaurants, galleries and gift shops pop up. Faux lighthouses sell ice cream, quaint diners feature fresh lobster and cozy cottages promise a quiet stay. We stop in at Dinena’s to fuel up on fresh out-of-the-oven pastries, then continuing on, we carve our way through lush mounds of stillgreen deciduous trees. Scenic viewpoints are etched into this route where, in a couple of weeks, the now muted hues will suddenly pop, transforming this rolling landscape into a Monet-like masterpiece.
Today, we check out a few picnic stops: the picturesque Big Intervale that straddles the North Aspy River, the trickling falls at MacIntosh Brook and the scenic platforms that offer a view of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. After traversing the pristine parkland, we’re now looking northwest across this massive waterway. We cruise through Pleasant Bay, a quaint community settled by Scottish immigrants in the early 1800’s. It’s now coined the Island’s Whale Watching Capital. Minutes down the road is MacKenzie Mountain lookout, where there’s an opportunity to witness these magnificent breach-

ing mammals. Unfortunately none are willing to perform for us today. We venture out on the next trail — an easy-graded gravel pathway so well-maintained even baby buggies can traverse it. We choose the road less travelled, much longer and more rugged. After splitting from the herd, one of our holiday hiking wishes comes true. Bordering our pathway we spy ground vegetation ablaze with vivid autumnal colour. An orchard-sized patch of burnt orange ferns ignite the way, pointing toward a fork in the trail. It is here where we cross the path of our next craving — we stumble across a long-legged, gangly female moose. Fortunately, no calves are around and so she is comfortable with being photographed. Our remaining travel wish comes to fruition when we re-join others at the high point of our jaunt. Wind-torn, stunted trees edging our route are an indication of subzero temperatures brought on by Old Man Winter. A boardwalk stretches over Scottish-like highlands that protect fragile alpine growth beneath. At the pathway’s end, we view a winding road far below, which will take us through more villages, townships and vistas along the final leg of Cabot Trail. For now, we’re riveted to Mother Nature and in all her glory —soaking up this stretching panorama of craggy headland and shimmering blue water. It’s yet another amazing mustsee and final wish come true. Travel Writers’ Tales is an independent travel article. For more information, go online to travelwriterstales.com.

The first Monday in September has been an official holiday in Canada since 1894, and in the United States since 1892. But the origin of Labour Day came 20 years before that, when unions started holding parades and rallies in Toronto and Ottawa to celebrate the successful 1872 Toronto printers’ strike — the original “fight for fairness” that won major changes including the decriminalization of unions in Canada. Today, Labour Day marks the unofficial end to summer and the start of a new school year for children in Canada and the United States. It is a day of rest and, for unions and labour activists, a day to celebrate the accomplishments of the labour movement and the benefits of having a union at work. But, as is the case with most holidays, the origins of Labour Day come from the struggles of working people and the demand for fairness. In this case, it was the movement to establish a nine-hour work day (the standard was a 12-hour work day and a sixday work week) and a strike by printers in
Toronto in the spring of 1872 to get it. Sensing a political opportunity to win support among Canada’s growing industrial working class (just months ahead of a federal election), Prime Minister John A. Macdonald passed the Trade Union Act, which legalized and protected union activity in Canada. The strike ended shortly afterward. Unions — now legal — began to demand fair wages, working hours and safer workplaces. The political class recognized that working people, as voters, were interested in issues that impacted their lives. On July 23, 1894 the government of Canada under the leadership of Prime Minister John Thompson passed a law making Labour Day official. Today, hundreds of communities across Canada and the United States hold picnics, parades, concerts and marches to mark the day. Unions also keep the tradition of using Labour Day to advance workers’ rights and advocate for changes for the lives of working people and their families.

Top Sex Pill in the US Gets LongAwaited Approval in Canada The highly anticipated sex pill boosts sexual performance while revitalizing the aging male body. No prescription will be required for Canadians. By Dr. Steven Klayman, DC TORONTO: One of America’s leading sex pills is now approved in Canada, giving Canadians an equal opportunity to enjoy the outstounding results experienced by their US counterparts. Sold under the brand name BH Testosterone, the new pill was developed specifically for aging men, bolstering both physical and sexual health. When taken just once daily, research shows it can increase red blood cell count, the cells responsible for oxygenating organs such as the brain, heart, and lungs. As oxygen levels increase, so does cellular energy, allowing these organs to function like they were years younger. Perhaps more important, the pill also blocks the enzyme in men which destroys testosterone. The result is higher levels of testosterone in the blood stream which leads to exciting changes in the bedroom including exceptional performance and a strong sex drive. “It’s wildly successful among Americans and we expect the same to hold true for Canadians” explains a spokesperson for the company behind the pill. “With daily use, men can expect their sexual performance to improve as well as key to health markers such a strength, stamina, endurance, muscle, and even cholesterol and triglycerides”, he adds.
An Injection-Free, Prescription-Free Alternative Studies show that as men get older, their testosterone levels decline due to increased activity of aromatase – the nasty-little enzyme which converts testosterone into the female hormone estrogen. Overtime, as this enzyme runs rampant, men experience the side effects of accelerated testosterone loss (ATL) such as exhaustion, muscle loss, fat gain and one sexual failure after another. Even worse, if testosterone lev els fall too low, life threatening conditions can arise − obesity, metabolic syndrome,
diabetes, insulin resistance, high blood pressure and osteoporosis are among the most serious. To combat these horrific side effects, many men try pills like Viagra or Cialis, but since these options do absolutely nothing for testosterone, they often fail. Then they look to synthetic testosterone replacement in the form of injections, patches, and gels. But these alternatives can overwhelm the body and carry a black label for potential serious side effects. That’s why BH Testosterone has become so popular with men in the states. The non-prescription pill targets the aromatase enzyme and essentially makes it useless, preserving your testosterone and reviving sexual health in the form of an amazing drive, desire and performance.
BETTER SEX, BETTER HEALTH: The developers of BH Testosterone, a Californiaentitled to substantial discounts during the intro period. The consequences of low testosterone can be severe according to WebMD. • Poor sexual performance • Erection issues • Bad sleep • Fatigue • Irritability • Enlarged prostate • Muscle weakness • Increased stomach, chest, and body fat this extract saw a staggering 66.9% increase in free testosterone in weeks.
Additional ingredients in the formula help to boost red blood cell levels quickly, getting energizing-oxygen into every organ that needs it.
This additional testosterone led to an impressive 22% increase in muscle strength. And what was truly amazing was that this strength came without working out.
The Secret To Testosterone & Male Vitality
Remarkably, the study also found that these men also experienced a 56.7% decrease in muscle deterioration. In laymen terms, these kept their remaining muscles for longer.
It’s almost ironic that a pharmaceutical company would develop a drug-free alternative for men, but it’s true. The California-based firm explains they are focused on OTC and consumer care products for those looking for non-prescription alternatives, like BH Testosterone. The active ingredient in the pill is a special plant-based extract called eurycoma longifolia. According to the most recent studies on the extract, if concentrated to the right amount, like in BH Testosterone, it prevents the aromatase enzyme from destroying your testosterone, ultimately resulting in improvements in physical and sexual health.
A Rush of Youthful Testosterone In a study published by the National Institutes of Health, men dosing with
Unexpected Bonus for Your Heart, Lungs, Joints, and Bones The proprietary BH Testosterone formula also brings on other outstanding health changes, especially within your cells, where everything starts. According to its creators, its second active ingredient has been shown to increase red blood cell counts in men. Research shows that red blood cells carry oxygen from the lungs to body tissues and carbon dioxide as a wasteproduct, away from the tissues and back to the lungs. The increase in red blood cells and oxygen in your muscles results in more blood flow and strength. It’s this cycle that also gives your organs the cellular energy they need
to thrive and work at maximum efficiency. It’s this cycle that also gives your organs the cellular energy they need to thrive and work at maximum efficiency.
An Innovative Sex and Health-Revitalizing Pill for Men With daily use, BH Testosterone users report remarkable improvements in their quality of life without of the serious side effects or interactions associated with prescription drugs. Readers can now enjoy an entirely new level of physical and sexual health that’s safer and more effective.

Collaborative effort brings colour to city garbage bins City, businesses and artists behind art bins project TODD SULLIVAN STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
on’t call this art “trash” just because it’s on the side of Kamloops garbage bins. In a project meant to solve the problem of graffiti while also helping beautify city streets, the City of Kamloops, The Downtown and North Shore Business Improvement Associations, street artists and local youth have come together to create art bins. The project follows an earlier experiment that saw street artist Landon Muzio paint a couple of alley garbage bins that had been repeatedly tagged with graffiti. When response to the art was positive, and the bins remained graffiti-free for weeks, they decided to expand the reach of the project. “In our opinion, it looks a lot better than just a yellow bin looks,” said Graham Lamont, civic operations supervisor for the City of Kamloops. “We are hoping that every other municipality sees this and says, ‘Wow, what an idea, we want to be

like the city of Kamloops.’” Artists, including Muzio, gathered with youth from Interior Community Services and Lii Michif Otipemisiwak Family and Community Services on Wednesday to spend the day painting the bins and learning about each other’s experiences.
CULTURE DAYS EVENT LINEUP IS ALL SET Event lineup/A27
Eight new bins will be added to the original two, and the group will work with the business improvement associations and businesses to identify locations for the bins in downtown and North Shore areas. The project was funded by the Community Action Initiative

through the Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions and the Overdose Emergency Response Centre, with the $2,500 grant going to artists, supplies and equipment. Though Lamont said the city might like to produce more painted bins in the future, he’s not sure what that might look like.

“We would love to do more in the future. It comes down to funding sources,” he said. “We put this together to really expose the mentors and the artists and to connect the youth. However, the next round may just be artists. It may be a mentor program. We’re not sure.”

Wizards and Wonders at upcoming 20th annual Children’s Art Festival KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK
If your kids are looking for a little magic in their lives, head to this year’s Children’s Art Festival on Sept. 13 and Sept. 14 in Riverside Park. The 20th annual festival, intended for children age two and older, will feature its main events on Saturday but also an after school event on Friday from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The Kids FunShop After School Party is geared toward children ages six to 12 and will feature workshops like make-your-own sock puppet, beginners cartooning and stop motion animation. On Saturday, events run 10 a.m.
to 4 p.m. and include a lineup of performers that includes the Green Man Project, Celtic fiddler and Delhi 2 Dublin member Serena Edes, ventriloquist Kellie Haines and storyteller Kenthen Thomas. Kids can also create their own costumes, with activities to make wizard hats, wands and fairy wings, and face painting and henna. Western Canada Theatre’s VW Turtle Race will take place concurrently on Saturday, and food trucks will be on site. Transit to the park is also available free, with a bus pass available at the Kamloops Arts Council office, 7 West Seymour St. For more information about the festival, go online to kamloopsarts.ca.
Campus/community radio station CFBX will soon kick off its annual volunteer drive. The volunteer-run-andprogrammed radio station broadcasts at 92.5 on the FM dial from the Thompson Rivers University campus and plays a variety of music and talk programming with a non-commercial focus. Volunteers, who do not need experience or to be a TRU student, will receive all training needed. This year, the station is espe-
cially in need of classical music hosts, hip-hop hosts, electronic music hosts and anyone interested in programming in a language other than English. The station offers a number of ways to get involved whether onair or off-air. Anyone interested in getting involved can contact CFBX by calling 250-377-3988, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by dropping by the station at House 8 behind the Campus Activity Centre on the TRU campus.
Laughing Stock to hold auditions Community theatre group Laughing Stock Theatre will soon hold auditions for its latest production. Auditions for The Snow Queen, a Totally Frozen Panto, will take place on Saturday, Sept. 14, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Ida Room at the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre, 1250 Rogers Way. The play, a traditional British panto, is casting for characters that vaguely resemble a popular frosty Disney film. A total of 22 characters are to be cast, including Ilsa, the Snow Queen and the Wizard.
Some roles require singing ability — which Laughing Stock describes as “willingness to sing” — while others have certain ages in mind. As is panto tradition, genders can be reversed for some roles. The Snow Queen, a Totally Frozen Panto, will play from
Dec. 24 to Dec. 30 at Sagebrush Theatre. Those interested in auditioning who can’t make the date should contact Schneider at email@example.com. For more information and to see all roles available to be cast, go online to thelaughingstock.ca.

On the quasi-legality of numbers stations
ne of the plot points of the latest and third season of Stranger Things is a mysterious Russian-run radio station broadcasting coded messages. These spy radio stations actually existed — and still exist — though these stations didn't broadcast the type of message heard in the Netflix show. Shortwave radio is a unique broadcast medium, having a worldwide range, a huge bandwith of frequencies and a limited listenership. That makes it perfect for broadcasting secret messages around the world. In the 1980s, spy radio was at its peak, with Russian, American, British, German, Cuban and French stations involved in spy transmissions, among other countries. One of the most popular modes of broadcast was called a “numbers station.” Numbers stations are radio transmissions that broadcast blocks of five numbers (phonetic alphabets) or Morse code, for short bursts to someone in the field receiving the message. These are coded messages that use a one-time code that can only be deciphered with the key coded to each message. In essence, they were completely anonymous, difficult to track to the source and impossible
to decode without prior knowledge, which made the broadcasts well suited for shortwave. Email, social media and printed coded messages can be tracked, intercepted and eventually decoded. Because numbers stations are only broadcast for short periods on frequencies generally only known to the broadcaster and the recipient, they are almost impossible to predict or track. Today, there’s less spy traffic on shortwave, but numbers stations still exist. The Russians and Americans are still broadcasting and the Chinese and North Koreans are broadcasting many numbers stations now. While numbers stations have
CONTENTat Valentine’sSPONSORED Weekend
never been officially recognized by world governments as spy broadcasts, an official in the UK Department of Trade and Industry once said, “These [numbers stations] are what you suppose they are. People shouldn't be mystified by them. They are not for, shall we say, public consumption.” Shortwave hobbyists have been tracking numbers stations for years, along with other strange broadcasts, under the Enigma Station project, which organizes the stations into type and country of origin. A group called the Conet Project released a four-disc audio compilation of numbers and code broadcasts, which is available by the producers for free download. Shortwave radio remains a place full of information, both legal and government-sanctioned, like national news and music broadcasts, to military and commercial broadcasts, like weather stations, time beacons and geographical markers, to quasi-legal broadcasts like numbers stations and encoded signals which the listeners need specialized equipment and knowledge to understand. Steve Marlow is the program co-ordinator at CFBX, an independent radio station in Kamloops. Tune in at 92.5 FM on the dial or go online to thex.ca.
WELCOME TO THe Holmes Is WHere
Writer-in-residence named The Thompson-Nicola Regional Library has announced its first-ever writer-in-residence. Deryn Collier will serve a three-month term at the library from Sept. 16 to Dec. 15. She will spend half her time providing writing assistance to other writers and half her time working on her own personal writing projects, and also host workshops and public readings. Collier will also have a role as a guest author at Words Alive Kamloops, the annual writers’ and readers’ festival presented by the Kamloops Society for the Written Arts, which will take
place this fall from Sept. 20 to Sept. 22. Her work includes mystery novels Confined Space and Open Secret, published by Simon and Schuster Canada. Both follow coroner Bern Fortin and are based in the Kootenays, where she lives in Nelson. Confined Space was shortlisted for the Arthur Ellis Award for best crime novel and was the One Book One Kootenay selection of the Kootenay Library Federation. Collier is currently working on a new series of mysteries set in Montreal in 1947, using an ancestor of hers as her latest character.

Daylan was invited to Arizona to live with the Doans and play for the Junior Coyotes during what turned out to be Shane’s final NHL campaign, the 2016-2017 season, which was also the 14-year-old forward’s draft year. “That’s a pretty hard experience to say no to,” said Daylan, who worked in the Coyotes’ dressing room on game days. “Even learning what it takes to be a pro, the commitment and the dedication that he put in, was huge for me. And coming to camp now and realizing, OK, I have to do all this stuff if I want to succeed as well as he did.” Trey Taylor, a 2002-born defenceman who played last season for the Vernon Vipers, also accepted an invitation to live with the Doans that season. “My wife, the last year of hockey, had six kids in the house,” said Shane, who along with wife, Andrea, has four children of his
own. “She is an amazing woman.” Mike knew sending Daylan to Arizona might hurt his bantamdraft standing. “That was the sacrifice he was willing to make to go and be with an NHL superstar,” Mike said. “How many kids can say they skated with NHL players? What a dream come true. “The thing Shane said: ‘When he’s here, I will treat him like my own son.’ And you know what? He did. It’s pretty special.” Mike raved about the Junior Coyotes’ head coach, Steve Potvin, but the lack of exposure did seem to damage Daylan’s value on draft day in 2017. Blazers’ GM Stu MacGregor and director of player personnel Matt Recchi used a 10th-round pick, the last on their board, to nab the unknown commodity from the Red Deer area. See KUEFLER, A32

Shane Doan, part-owner of the Kamloops Blazers, was more than familiar with the 2002 WHL Bantam Draft class. Josh, his son, was part of it, and picked by the Blazers in the ninth round, 190th overall. “While that draft was going on, I was a little upset,” Shane said. “I knew who all the good players were. I watched them all play. “He should have went way, way, way, way higher.” Shane was not referring to his son during the phone call with KTW on Tuesday, but to Stettler, Alta., product Daylan Kuefler. “Daylan is an amazing kid, like a truly gentle, intense, competitive, caring, do-anything-to-win type of kid that you want your kids to be around,” said Shane, who served as the Arizona Coyotes’
tying marker with 4.7 seconds remaining in regulation in the split-squad tournament final. Daylan’s father, Mike, and Shane played for the Killam Wheat Kings during the 1991-1992 campaign. Killam is about 80 kilometres north of Shane’s hometown, Halkirk, Alta., and about 115 kilometres southwest of Stettler. Mike was 19, but took a liking to 15-year-old Shane (perhaps because the rookie racked up 80 goals and 164 points in 56 games that season) and the relationship outlasted junior hockey — in a big way. “He was so good in hockey. We knew he was special. You could tell he was special,” said Mike, who Shane referred to as Shrek. “But the one thing everybody needs to know about Shane Doan is he is just a great human being. There are no words to describe what kind of a guy he is. He’s an incredible human being.”

ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW The wait is over for Kamloops Blazers’ fans, who will be able to see local product Logan Stankoven in the lineup on a full-time basis in 2019-2020.
Kyrell Sopotyk wants to be counted on, given ice time in key situations and relied on to produce points. “We all want to be in the top six, those go-to guys,” said Sopotyk, who cracked the Kamloops Blazers’ roster last season and racked up 18 points, 13 of them goals, in 64 games. “I’m going to be pushing for that.” So are about 10 of his teammates — a dilemma for the 5-foot-10, 178-pound left shot from Aberdeen, Sask., and a welcomed quandary for the Blazers. The forward group has 11 returnees and depth unseen in recent years. Zane Franklin, 20, Ryley Appelt, Orrin Centazzo and Brodi Stuart, each entering their 19-year-old seasons, Connor Zary, Martin Lang, Jerzy Orchard and Sopotyk, beginning their 18-year-old campaigns, Josh Pillar, 17, and Logan Stankoven, 16, are safe bets to make the team. Kobe Mohr is an incumbent overager, but has competition in 20-yearold Alec Zawatsky, who split last season playing for Swift Current and Moose Jaw. “I love it,” said Mohr, who carved out a piece of Blazers’ history with the game-winning goal in a post-
season play-in game victory over the Kelowna Rockets in March at Sandman Centre. “Nobody is safe in the long run. It just adds another level of compete and it’s really fun out there.” Zary had a breakout season in 2018-2019, tallying 67 points in 63 games, and is projected by some to be a first-round pick in the NHL Draft next summer. He heads what seems likely to be a strong group — one that has potential to be dynamic and includes Kamloops wunderkind Stankoven. “There is a lot of room for guys to move up and down the lineup,” said Stuart, who had 20 goals and 38 points in 68 games last season. “We’ve got a lot of depth this year. It makes for more competitiveness in practices and when we’re scrimmaging.” Centazzo had 51 points last season, nearly doubling his point total from the previous campaign, despite inconsistency. Much is expected of him in 2019-2020. Franklin waited until his 19-yearold season to show his scoring potential. He led the Blazers with 68 points in 68 games, racking up 30 more points than he did in 20172018. See DOAN, A33

McCulloch wins gold in age group at Ironman MARTY HASTINGS
Kaileen McCulloch pushes herself for reasons familiar to many triathletes. She enjoys nature, the social aspect that comes along with training, fulfilment that accompanies reaching milestones and the feeling — oh, that feeling — of being healthy and happy, endorphin-filled and smiling. But the difference between McCulloch and most mere mortals seems to be her natural ability. The 26-year-old Smithers product turned Kamloopsian entered her first full-length Ironman triathlon on Aug. 18, when she tackled the gruelling event in Mont-Tremblant, Que. McCulloch completed the course — a 3.8-kilometre swim, 180km bike and 42.2km run — in less than 10 hours, with a time (9:51:59) that landed her first in the female 25- to 29-year-old division. She placed seventh overall among women and 56th overall. The only females who finished in front of her are professional triathletes. Carrie Lester, a 38-year-old Australian, posted a time of 8:48:26 to claim gold in the women’s division. Cody Beals of Ontario was the overall winner, with a time of 7:58:34. “I didn’t really have any major expectations going into it,” McCulloch said. “My goal was pretty much to just complete it and feel like I gave it my all. I feel like I accomplished that.” The result earned her a berth at the Ironman World Championship on Oct. 12 in Kona, Hawaii, where top triathletes from across the planet will race in the world-famous event. “Every person’s journey to Kona is different and I’m excited to get to race alongside so many amazing athletes and, hopefully, hear some of their stories in the pre- and post-race celebrations,” McCulloch said. “It’s hot, humid and windy and has a tough bike course and an ocean swim, a very different stage than Mont-Tremblant.” Fellow Kamloops Triathlon Club members Yvonne Timewell and Kate Stebbings have also qualified to compete at worlds in Kona. McCulloch’s training schedule in
the buildup phase consists of about 25 hours to 30 hours of training per week, most often split into two sessions per day, every day of the week. Two weeks before race day, she cuts back to under 20 hours per week. She trains for about eight hours in the week leading up to the race. The Two Story Robot employee dabbled in triathlon when she was growing up, but used it mostly as cross-training for cross-country skiing. A move to Victoria for university in 2011 essentially nixed cross-country skiing and sparked McCulloch’s reentry into triathlon, but she didn’t fully commit herself to training until this past December, when former pro triathlete Nathan Champness jumped on board to coach her. She finished first among women and eighth overall at the Oliver Half Iron in June, completing the race — a 2km swim, 89km bike and 21km run — in 4:42:50. Results suggest she might consider turning pro, but McCulloch does not seem interested. Chasing milestones and endorphins will suffice. “I love everything about it,” McCulloch said. “I do it mostly for the enjoyment aspect. I don’t feel the need to turn pro.”

Sandjam to help WolfPack
ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW FILE Billie Aaltonen of Kelowna managed to keep this ball off the dirt in Kamloops Open beach volleyball action in July. Beach volleyball will return to Overlander Park this weekend.
The Kamloops Beach Volleyball Club will host a pair of tournaments this weekend at Overlander Park. Sandjam, a co-ed triples tournament and fundraiser for the TRU WolfPack volleyball teams, will be held on Saturday.

BRIEFS will be held on Sunday, with teams from across the Okanagan and Interior expected to participate. ON THE COURT Eric Bojesen of the Kamloops Tennis Centre competed for Tennis B.C. in the 75to 79-year-old division at the Tennis Canada Steve Stevens Senior Outdoor Nationals,
which wrapped up on Saturday in Toronto. He won three matches and reached the final in singles action, but an injury kept him out of the gold-medal match. Bojesen and partner Bill Berry reached the doubles final, but both were fighting leg injuries and they fell in straight sets (1-6, 3-6). Bojesen has been selected to represent Canada at the International Tennis Federation SuperSeniors World Team Championships, which will run from Sept. 15 to Sept. 21 in
Umag, Croatia. SIGN UP TO SWIM The Kamloops Triathlon Club will play host to the first annual Copper Island Swim on Saturday, Sept. 7. Swimmers will start on the beach at Shuswap Lake Provincial Park in Scotch Creek and head toward the turnaround point before Copper Island. The 2.7-kilometre swim is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Register online at trytri.org. Volunteers are needed.
Kuefler’s next chance to shine is pre-season opener on Saturday From A29
“Shane said there is one guy I’d really like you to draft if you’ve got an opportunity,” MacGregor said. “He says, ‘I know the family and he’s lived with us in Phoenix, playing hockey this past year, but I know he can play in the Western league,’ so we took Shane at his word and drafted him. We hadn’t seen him previous to that.” MacGregor and Recchi did not escape sweeping changes made by majority owner Tom Gaglardi following the 2017-2018 season. Matt Bardsley was named GM last June. Gaglardi’s hirings, firings and reassignments occured after Daylan signed with the Blazers in April of 2018, but the overhaul was worrisome to Mike Kuefler. “If they get taken in the eighth, ninth, 10th round, do they get a look? Of course, they get a look. But do they really?” Mike said. “That was my concern when the management changed, but Matt Bardsley has been awesome. He’s reached out. And Daylan works hard. He really wants to be a hockey player.” Shane encouraged the Kueflers not to dwell on Daylan’s late-round-pick status.
“It was worrisome, for sure, but Shane kept ensuring us it doesn’t matter where you go [in the draft],” Mike said. “It’s the chances you get and when you get the opportunity you have to prove yourself.” Daylan recorded 18 goals and 36 points in 34 games last season with the Red Deer Chiefs, good for a tie for 13th in Alberta Midget Hockey League scoring in his 16-year-old campaign. “He’s the type of kid that will go down the ice, slash you in the back of the legs, you turn around, punch him in the head and he falls down and draws a penalty,” Doan said. “The next time he comes down the ice, he slashes you in the back of the legs, you turn around and punch him in the head, he drops his gloves and beats you up. The next time he comes on the ice, he completely
ignores you and goes in and scores a goal. “He literally does whatever it takes for his team to win. That’s his greatest quality.” Doan might have a future in sales, but Daylan did his own advertising at training camp. Bardsley was pleased with improved skating, direct play, a willingness to drive the net and scoring touch. “We knew he was a quality person,” Bardsley said. “We wanted to see how he was as a player. We’re looking forward to seeing him in exhibition, but Daylan had a good camp.” The Blazers’ pre-season schedule begins on Saturday when the Victoria Royals come to town. Game time is 7 p.m. at Sandman Centre. Daylan, once a draft afterthought in the desert, sees an oasis ahead. “That’s all I want, is to play on this team,” Daylan said. “It’s probably the biggest thing in my life right now.” ROYAL APPOINTMENT The Royals have hired MacGregor to be their western senior regional scout. Gary Pochipinski is the team’s eastern regional scout, Ed Fowler is director of
player personnel and Cameron Hope is president and general manager. MacGregor, who said he is thrilled with the opportunity to work for Victoria, was asked about the emotions that come along with seeing his former team, the Blazers he helped build, perhaps primed for a good season. “There is certainly some emotion,” said MacGregor, whose new gig will not force him to move away from Kamloops. “I felt we were invested in those players, with meeting them, speaking with the players and the families and recruiting them to play in Kamloops. “Pleased they are going to be players who will make a difference for the organization, so there is some pride and excitement, for sure. Proud that we were able to contribute.” DOAN SIGNS WITH ASU Josh Doan committed in June to play hockey for Arizona State University. He is likely to begin his NCAA Division 1 career with the Sun Devils in 2021-2022. Doan, 17, is expected to play this season for the Chicago Steel of the U.S. Hockey League.

Stuart is a two-way forward and leader whose point totals don’t always indicate his value. Still, tallying 38 points last season was tantamount to underachieving. He will want to do better in 2019-2020. Lang, a European import from the Czech Republic, was adapting to the North American game last season, but managed to find his stride and finished with 33 points, including 11 goals, in 65 games as a 17-year-old. He earned national team experience in the summer and an invite to the Carolina Hurricanes’ development camp in September. Appelt played his best hockey, a physical brand, down the stretch. Eight of Sopotyk’s 13 goals in 2018-2019, his 17-year-old rookie season, came after the
Christmas break. He had four goals and five points in six post-season games. “There are a lot of returning guys,” Franklin said. “That’s a good start. We have to use that chemistry we had last year and keep building on things and we’ll start to click.” The group has upside, potential to be special, and nobody embodies that more than Stankoven, whom the Blazers landed with the fifth overall pick in the 2018 bantam draft. Stankoven, who got into seven regular-season tilts and six playoff games last season as a 15-year-old, should make easier the jobs of folks in the Blazers’ marketing and ticket sales departments. “I think it’s huge having Stankoven,” Blazers’ partowner Shane Doan said. “I’m big on local kids. “And I think some of the

draft choices and picks over the last few years are paying off. And we’re really excited about the coaching staff.” Shaun Clouston took the head coaching reins in the off-season, replacing Serge Lajoie, whose tenure in Kamloops ended after one season. “I’ve been talking to him a lot lately, getting on the same page,” Franklin said. “He’s a smart coach and I think it’s going to work good.” Josh Pillar is one of those draft choices Doan mentioned, the 17th overall pick in the 2017 bantam draft, a centre who had 22 points, including seven goals, in his 16-year-old campaign. “Out of all five years that I’ve played in this league, it’s the deepest by far,” Mohr said of the Blazers’ forwards. “There is going to be a lot of role-fillers this year. Not
everyone is going to get to be the No. 1 or No. 2 guy.” There are likely two or three roster spots up for grabs for non-returnees, with Daylan Kuefler and Riley Ginnell, both 17, and Caedan Bankier and Matthew Seminoff, both 16, set to jostle for position in the pre-season. Kuefler took a huge leap toward nailing down one of those spots by scoring 10 goals in four training-camp scrimmages, including a game-tying marker with 4.7 seconds remaining in the split-squad tournament final. Kamloops will open its exhibition slate against Victoria on Saturday. Game time is 7 p.m. at Sandman Centre. The regular-season and home opener is scheduled for Sept. 20, when the Spokane Chiefs come to town for a 7 p.m. start.

ANSWERING THE QUESTION: WHY JESUS?
everal weeks ago, following a game of golf at Tobiano golf course, I sat down with a friend of mine for dinner at the course’s restaurant. The young couple we were paired with that afternoon joined us for dinner. Since the couple was rather new to Kamloops, my friend and I shared with them what we really liked about the city. As we talked together, the young man began to ask us several questions about the Christian faith, and as well, he shared his deep conviction about life beyond this life. The young lady also shared an experience with us, where she was encouraged to attend a weekend retreat that challenged its participants to think deeply about developing their every gift and talent.
Firstly, some people choose to follow Jesus Christ because they are attracted to the values he taught, such as the “golden rule” which reads: “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you….” This teaching challenges us, to take the initiative in treating people, the very way we want to be treated. For a moment, can you imagine a world where everyone is treating others as they want to be treated? Frankly, it would be a “taste of heaven” and that is what Christ teachings will do for those who embrace them. Yes, his teachings challenge our propensity to self-centredness and call us to live a life that seeks to help other humans flourish. Looking back on my own life, it was most certainly the values
HARRY BICKNELL YOU GOTTA HAVE
Eventually, the conversation led me to share why I believe people become followers of Jesus Christ in the first place. Although I only shared a few reasons that evening, the question, “why Jesus?” or “why follow Jesus?” has stayed with me. So, I would like to share seven reasons people have shared with me why they initially, began to follow Jesus.
I found in the Bible, that motivated me to become a follower of Jesus. Secondly, some people would say, they follow Jesus because of the joy and peace he offers. Several years ago, I heard the story of a young mother, who became a follower of Jesus, because of another young mother who always seemed so incredibly joyful in the midst of parenting four small children. When she approached this mother, asking her where her joy came from, she responded, “it comes from Jesus,” which in turn led her to becoming a follower of Jesus. Thirdly, I recently heard a lady share with a group of people that she was drawn to Jesus when she came to understand just how much he loved her. Her story is not

encountered anyone like him. In the words of one of my favourite authors, Jesus is the epitome of all that is good. In the words of a close friend, Jesus is such an attractive and compelling person. Likewise, from experience, I can say that Jesus is worth following because of what he will do in your life. I If you are interested in answering the question, “why Jesus?” for yourself, pick up a copy of the New Testament and see for yourself what Jesus has to say.

In following Christ, they have discovered they were created to love God and to love people as they love themselves. Sixthly, many people say they became a follower of Jesus because of his promise to give eternal life to all who trust in him. As Jesus is quoted as saying in John’s gospel, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him, shall not perish, but have eternal life.” In my understanding, eternal life is about both a “new quality of life” and ultimately living forevermore in the presence of God in an environment of love, where everything functions as it should. So, when you consider the fact that the average Canadian only lives for 82 or so years, the promise of eternal life is a very attractive promise and a promise that leads many people to follow Jesus. Finally, there are those who will say they follow Jesus because they have never

unique, for many people become followers of Jesus because of the love he offers each and every one of us. In the case of this lady, I have seen how her experience of God’s love has motivated her to love other people and, as well, how God’s love has helped her to deal with many difficult circumstances that have come her way. Fourthly, some people become Christians because they find in Jesus what they have been looking for all through their life: forgiveness. Yes, every one of us has experienced guilt over something we have done and most certainly we all have regrets over not doing something we know we ought to have done. We all know we need forgiveness. In fact, I believe it’s a universal need, but it’s a need that Jesus is able to personally address for each of us. Fifthly, people become Christians, because Jesus helps them find their purpose and meaning in life.

A. Laws in BC say that a deceased body must be “disposed of” (what a horrendous word!) and it can happen in one of two ways: burial or cremation. If it’s buried, the law considers “disposal” complete. If it’s disposed of by cremation, it has to be disposed of again once it becomes ashes. That second disposal can be complicated! !

FRANCIS DALE MARINO
May 11, 1934 – August 30, 2018
It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the passing of Dale Marino in the North Okanagan Hospice at the age of 84 years. Dale is survived by his loving wife, Marie Sigalet; three daughters, Toni (Tom), Julie and Denise (Peter); three grandchildren, Jennifer, Brendan and Erin; four great-grandchildren, Brody, Isabella, Paisley and Kashtyn; Marie’s three sons, David, Phil and Don; her daughter, Paula and their families. He will be deeply missed by relatives, his very special Mexican familia, coffee buddies, and many lifelong friends. Dale was preceded in death by his first wife, Donna Marino; and his parents, Frances and Tony Marino. Dale was born and raised in Revelstoke, B.C. He had a sense of adventure from a very young age. Dale worked for Parks Canada and was stationed in Glacier National Park. He joined the RCMP in 1957 and became a dog handler in 1967. He retired from the force in 1987 and worked security at HVC and Afton Mine. Dale was a long time member of the Order of Eastern Star, Masonic Lodge and the Gizeh Shrine Club. Dale and Marie enjoyed driving to Mexico every winter where they met other snowbirds over the years, forming lasting relationships. His greatest joy however, was spending time with his grandkids and great-grandkids. Dale will always be remembered for his quick smile, sense of humour and story telling. He touched many lives, and leaves us all with many cherished memories. Cremation preceded the Funeral Service which will be held at Peace Lutheran Church, 1204-30th Avenue in Vernon on Saturday, August 31st, 2019 at 1:30 P.M. with Pastor David Hunter officiating. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Dale to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation, 2101-32nd Street, Vernon, B.C. V1T 5L2 or the North Okanagan Hospice Society, 3506-27th Avenue, Vernon, B.C. V1T 1S4 or the charity of your choice. The family would like to thank Dr. Michael Murphy, the nurses and support staff at Vernon Jubilee Hospital as well as the dedicated staff and volunteers at North Okanagan Hospice for the compassionate care provided to Dale. Thank you to the friends and relatives who visited, sent messages or called him. He felt so blessed and loved.

Farewell, Dear Mother Somewhere in my heart beneath all my grief and pain, Is a smile I still wear at the sound of your dear name. The precious word is ‘Mom’, she was my world you see, But now my heart is breaking cause she’s no longer here with me. God chose her for His angel to watch me from above, To guide me and advise me and know that I’m still loved. The day she had to leave me when her life on earth was through, God had better plans for her, for this, I surely knew. When I think of her kind heart and all those loving years, My memories surround me and I can’t hold back the tears. She truly was my best friend, someone I could confide in, She always had a tender touch and a warm and gentle grin. I want to thank you Mom for teaching me so well, And though the time has come that I must bid you this farewell. I’ll remember all you’ve taught me and make you proud you’ll see, Thank you Dear Mother for all the love you showed me.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM In Loving Memory of
Suzanne Bennett (nee Ross)
Maurice Joseph Lavoie
June 1952 – August 2019
1963 - 2019
Maurice was born on May 8, 1963 at Lady Minto Hospital in Ashcroft, BC. He passed on Sunday, August 11, 2019 in Clinton, BC. He is survived by his wife Laurel Bangham, mother Rosemarie and stepfather Howard, brother Michael, daughter Francine (Harrison), son Colin, previous wife Kelly Lavoie, grandchildren Aden, Mikala, Robbie and George and brothers-inlaw William (Kelly) Spoonemore and James Spoonemore.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Suzanne (Suzie) Bennett (nee Ross) on August 19th at the age of 67 after a year-long battle with brain cancer. Suzanne was born in Regina, Saskatchewan in 1952 to Dulcie (nee Jones) and Maitland Ross, the third of nine children, and raised on the family farm in Milestone, Saskatchewan. Upon high school graduation, she moved to Kamloops, B.C. where she began nursing college. Within a couple of years there, she met her husband (Bruce) on a chance bus trip from Salmon Arm to Kamloops and were married almost 42 years. Together, they raised four children in Burlington, Ontario, and now have six grandchildren in B.C., Ontario and Nova Scotia. She was a well-respected and well-known ICU nurse, having spent approximately 25 years at Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital in Burlington, Ontario, and then in Salmon Arm, B.C. at Shuswap Lake General Hospital for 15 years, up until last year when she became ill. Suzanne was a selfless woman of many passions and endless compassion for others. Although nurse by profession, she was also a self-taught home-renovator, seamstress, gardener, long-distance runner, hiker, stock trader and reader. Suzie/Mom/Granny will be deeply missed and forever remembered for her soft, caring nature and incredible strength, determination and resiliency. Her legacy for taking care of those around you, creating and leaving things better and more beautiful than when you found them, continues to live on in her children and grandchildren. Suzanne leaves behind her husband (Bruce), children Sharon (Scott), Pamela (Esmeraldo), Diana (Chris), and George, grandchildren Maitland, Aidan, Liam, Margaret, Henry, Clare, sisters Rosemary, Shelley, Julie, brothers Robbie, Jim, George, mother-in-law Mae, sister-in-law Joan and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. She is predeceased by her parents, sister Heather and brother Joel. A special thank you to Dr. Jeremy Sawatzky-Martens, Dr. Main, Dr. J.F. Chevalier, the doctors and nurses at Shuswap Lake General Hospital, and the nurses at Bastion Place for their kindness and care during Suzanne’s difficult last year. Another special thank you to Joyce, although retired, continues to live by ‘once a nurse, always a nurse’. Suzanne received the highest standard of care that she, herself, would have given to any of her patients and their families. Suzanne’s heart and soul were in the community of Salmon Arm – she loved it, and the beauty and bounty it offers. To honour her, benches will be placed in her name at McGuire Lake and Canoe Beach. Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life is planned for October. Stories and notes of condolences are greatly appreciated and can be sent to Suzanne’s Obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation or The Terry Fox Foundation, or just be kind to someone today.
The Memorial Service will be held at 3:00 pm on Saturday, September 14, 2019 in the Clinton Memorial Hall, 306 Lebourdais Street. Father Dale Normandeau, Celebrant. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577 Condolences may be sent to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

Rodger William John Stewart It is with extremely saddened hearts that we announce the passing of Rodger William John Stewar at the age of 61. He is survived by his wife Tanis, daughter Ashleigh (Rob), son Nathan (Alex), granddaughters Myla and Willow, siblings, in-laws, nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his father John Stewart. Rodger was born in Duncan, BC to John and Joyce Stewart. In school, Rodger participated in numerous activities such as road and cross country races, band and of course, shing and hunting. He played rugby for his junior and senior high school teams as well as for the Cowichan Rugby Club. After high school, he moved to Victoria to attend the University of Victoria where he met his wife Tanis. After working for the Central Interior Tribal Councils, Rodger and Tanis lived on the Island for a few years where he managed a salmon fishery on the West Coast. They welcomed their daughter Ashleigh in 1987 and their son Nathan in 1991. In 1993, the family moved to Williams Lake as Rodger secured a career with the Ministry of Environment and later with the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development. He was a dedicated passionate employee who would rather be in the field than behind a desk. Rodger also became a prominent figure in the Williams Lake rugby community due to his passion for the game. He coached at the high school level and was named President of the Williams lake Rustlers Rugby Club where he had played for years prior. Rodger also

had a deep passion for fishing and hunting which he passed on to his son. He loved the thrill of outsmarting the fish and hooking into a big one; the thrill he shared with his granddaughters. He loved being a grandpa despite his objection about “getting old.” He could also be found happily falling trees and chopping them up for firewood or singing to Rolling Stones or Fleetwood Mac while making pancakes on a weekend morning. Rodger and Tanis enjoyed visiting wineries, micro-breweries and going on adventures in warm destinations such as Costa Rica, Jamaica and Cuba; South Africa held a special place in his heart. Rodger’s heart belonged to his family, friends, his work and his community. In lieu of flowers and to honour the tremendous contribution Rodger made to the local rugby community, the family is creating the Rodger Stewart Legacy Fund through the Cariboo Foundation Society. Tax receipt-able contributions can be made to this legacy fund through the Cariboo Foundation Society, #201– 35 South 2nd Avenue, Williams Lake, BC V2G 3W3 (phone: 250-392-2911). There will also be a Celebration of Life held at the Williams Lake Rugby Clubhouse on September 14, 2019 at 1:00 pm.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Caroline (Dragica Kathleen) Matonovich (née Katalinic) October 15, 1936 - August 17, 2019
We are the children of Caroline. We have been given an incredible mother who showed great love, wisdom, care and compassion. Her gift to us is the special part of her that will live in each of us. She was loving, giving and the most unselfish person we have known. A mother’s love is the strongest bond and she showed this to us daily. The love that she has taught us will continue to grow and will only strengthen over time in our lives and in our memories. We know that she is in heaven and they have received a beautiful angel. Thank you mom and we will always love you. We are the grandchildren of Caroline (Bubbie). We have been given a grandmother full of kindness, joy and love. The wonderful gift that you have instilled in our parents will live in each of us as well. She encouraged our dreams and praised our every success (small or big).
Caroline was born in Flin Flon, Manitoba on October 15, 1936 to John and Manda Katalinic, who immigrated from Croatia to create a better life for their family. In 1937, her family moved to Richmond, BC where she was raised and went to school. She had many friends growing up and had remained lifelong friends with many of them. After graduating from high school, she worked in Richmond until she married and moved to Kamloops in 1958. Here is where she raised her four children. Mom worked very hard on the family orchard and made the best apple pies in the world. This was well received by her family and friends. She was an avid reader and loved her books. She was regularly exchanging books with friends that could be compared to the book club phenomena we have today. She had a real passion for helping others in need and was a strong advocate for supporting those from vulnerable populations. The most enjoyable part of her life was to watch her children and grandchildren grow, play and be involved in their activities. She so loved watching all of us perform in more ways than one. She is survived by her children Lani (Doug) Malanchuk, Debbie Matonovich, Nicky (Kathy) Matonovich, Johnny (Sukh) Matonovich, her grandchildren Julia, Nicholas, Jayse, Raiya and John Matonovich (father of her children). She is also survived by her sister Mary Ann (Barrie) Hunt, brothers Joseph Katalinic and John Katalinic and many nieces and nephews.
David Barry Crealock
February 20, 1940 – August 14, 2019
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of David (Dave) Crealock on August 14, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer. Dave is survived by his loving wife Betty-Anne, daughters Karen (Brent) and Lesley (Mike), grandsons Colin and Cody, and sister Joan MacGregor. He is predeceased by his brother Edward. Dave’s number one priority was his family and we are forever grateful for that. Many thanks to the wonderful staff at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice and The Hamlets during this difficult time.
Predeceased by her parents John and Manda Katalinic, infant brothers Marco and Louis Katalinic.
There will be no service as per Dave’s request.
We would like to thank Dr. Hollman for her care and love to our mother and our family. Also, the loving care provided at the Ponderosa Lodge and Trinity Hospice.
Should friends desire, donations to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice would be appreciated
A private family service was held.
Bubbie, you will always have a cherished place in our memories and our hearts.
Rest in peace Dave

Cheers to a wonderful Lady!! Mom was born in Cumberland, BC. Life’s stories from mom were always fun to hear. Much later, mom moved to Vancouver where she met dad. They had three great kids…Kathy, Dave and John. Mom loved helping dad with canning his home grown vegetables, ha ha, and keeping chickens in their pens and even ducks.When not hard at work, they would take a break and go to Reno on bus tours.
In Loving Memory of Irving (Doc) Heron January 8, 1930 – September 2, 2010
In 1999, mom and dad moved to Kamloops. Mom lived in her own home until recently. She loved to sit on her deck in the sun having her cup of coffee in the morning and relaxing. Mom looked forward to our visits and in the evenings having a small glass of wine. Mom also had a passion for cruising and travelling…..”sure wish I could go on another cruise!” Mom is survived by her sister Shirley Simpson (Keremeos), her kids Kathy, Dave (Judy) and John (Janice), grandchildren Jason (Nancy), Carlea, Christina (Elliott), Darrin (Jennifer), Jocelyn (John), Brian (Nicole), Stephen (Karly), John and Taylor (Heidi), great-grandchildren Ella, Landon, Easton, Ty, Cade, Lennon, Cooper, Lily, Calder, Abigayle, Quinn, Benjamin, Zora, Payton, as well as Nicolas, Graem and their mother Lori .

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night DYLAN THOMAS Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightening they Do not go gentle into that good night. Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way, Do not go gentle into that good night. Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. And you, my father, there on the sad height, Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray. Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
